Driver Uninjured After Hitting Stoplight on 33rd Avenue

COLUMBUS – Columbus Police reports say a driver escaped injury, after an attempt to turn resulted in a head-on collision with the base of a traffic light.

CPD reports say the 26-year-old was heading northbound on 33rd Avenue, when they attempted to turn left onto 8th Street.

The driver was uninjured but the 2017 Dodge Ram Pickup suffered an estimated $3,000 in damage, and the pole suffered an estimated $200 in damage, says reports. The accident occurred at roughly 8:15 p.m. on Friday, says CPD.
